ARHS held its Graduation for the Class of 2020

Yesterday, Algonquin Regional High School held a gathered, graduation ceremony for the Class of 2020.

About 75 students* took advantage of the opportunity, with family and guests in attendance. The ceremony, held on a field, allowed participants to sit at safe distances. The class’s Assistant Principal Andrew McGowan shared some of the details.

Speakers included the faculty members selected by the class: Phys Ed teacher Kristen Morcone and Applied Arts & Technology teacher Nicole Ruffo, and Class Advisors Emily Philbin and Angela Moll. Superintendent Greg Martineau also addressed the graduates.

Class of 2020 Vice President Meredith Lapidas led the class in turning the tassels and the cap toss.

Here are photos contributed by the school and shared on social media. (Note: I cropped some to get a better closeup.)

*Participants only represented about 1/5 – 1/4 of the 339 member class. However, the school already held other ceremonies for graduates earlier this summer. Students picked up diplomas in early June and had a drive thru celebration with teachers. Still, for some students, the gathered ceremony was an important milestone they lobbied for. The school promised to hold one on July 30th if possible. Administrators were able to deliver yesterday.
